Back many years ago (retired for 15 years now) Delta loved me - stop doing business trips and now forgotten (except some minor benefits fro Million Miler status). We will welcome you to the back of the bus............or on Southwest.

 

I'm a little over 900K miles so not even a million miler yet.  I might get there, but probably not soon.  Last I looked though, that was just permanent silver which as you say, only offers minor benefits.  Rarely do you get a first class bump now from silver.

I won't hit 2 million in my lifetime (but close). Yes - permanent Silver status - extra free bag and a smile. I was to be a "Flying Colonel" but they dropped that program (if anybody remembers that was the initial loyalty program).

Here are two pictures. One shows my DD with her fiancé. The other shows the table centerpieces. We were able to celebrate with a combined total of 52 family/friends. Great time.

I love that the fiancé's shirt matches the table centerpieces.  🙂

About a year pre pandemic my Brother who has traveled for business for many years was mistakingly upgraded with American Airlines as a elite / platinum member I think they call it.     He did not reach the million miler and had no idea other than possibly a computer glitch but he gets all kinds of perks and upgrades to first class on a regular basis.    He said at a couple of airports they have a concierge meet you as soon as you check in and they will escort you to the lounge, secure your carryon, get you food and drink, whatever you want then even walk you onto the plane in some cases.       

I wish someone would make that mistake on their computer for us!

I only drink Bloody Marys early in the morning on a golf course.  Tradition.  Not a fan of tomato juice either but it makes for good swing oil when mixed with vodka and some spicy heat.  Sure...toss in a stalk of celery.

This would be me.  If you are looking for a commercial Bloody Mary mix, try Zing Zang.  Best store mix period.

 

A friend of mine is a bartender and he makes his own mix, occassionally he will give me a two liter bottle of his private version it is Devine.

Raw celery is fine, not a fan of cooked.

 

Laura does use it as a drip rack when roasting a turkey, but we don't eat it

 

Same here.  Cooked celery has no appeal to me.

It is 72°F in our back garden.

Pauline is working from home and I have been sorting paperwork, phoning customers, emptying the dishwasher and hanging washing on the line.

We have just had lunch and I am sunbathing.

Hope you all are having a great day.

Graham.

I don't like tomato juice

Same here I hate tomato juice.    Eric used to drink V8's - Yuck - Gross!

I guess it's wierd since I love tomatoes, tomato sauce, ketchup, just not tomato juice or tomato soup.

I guess I am an odd duck. I love tomato juice, V8, Bloody Mary's with celery and even tuna and chicken salad with celery for some crunch. Oh well different strokes for different folks. John is right if you eat just plain celery you burn more calories eating it than the calories that are in celery.

I remember being a kid (somewhere age 8-11) and taking my first flight by myself and telling the stewardess I wanted a bloody mary 🤣because I had seen it on tv.

she must have brought me tomato juice with a celery stick in it. I'm scarred for life. I've never been able to drink tomato juice again.

The only crunch I want with my tuna salad is crackers.

I too love tomatoes in almost any form but retch at the thought of tomato juice.

Cheese Wiz isn’t for me, but pimento cheese is good on celery.

Great story. I completely understand. For Bloody Mary mix I use the Mr. and Mrs T's Bloody Mary Mix. I don't think it is a true tomato juice. It also comes in a bold and spicy mix which is really good.

My wife is like that. Loves ketchup but will take a tomato off of a hamburger. She loves BBQ baked beans but will not eat any other kind of beans. We humans are interesting in that way.
